Your favorite Firefox extensions

I have several, but I'll just list a few:

Nuke Anything
Eliminate any annoying page element (except Flash) instantly, without refreshing. Good for animated gifs.

FlashBlock
Replaces Flash movies with an icon that you must click to start the Flash. Stop the annoying visual chatter.

BugMeNot
I hate registering at free subscription sites (like newspaper sites) to just read one story, so I save time and retain some privacy by calling up a window with generic usernames and passwords that others have submitted to a database.

Tab Killer
I hate tabbed browsing.

Clone Window
To emulate Internet Explorer's new page functionality.

IE View
Oops, this actually belongs under LEAST favorite extensions, since I wish I never had to use this...
